The lovers can’t fight forever, and I think the audience would have revolted if they kept this conflict going. Lu Zhen and Gao Zhan has this magnetic pull towards each other that made the episode (the latter part) pretty enjoyable to watch.

I tend to look at the next ten episodes as where the drama got it right. Alonsi!
